Tyler Ginter is a passionate and innovative freelance producer, ﬁlmmaker, photographer, editor, and instructor who loves traveling the world. Tyler spent four years on active duty assigned to 55th Combat Camera, the only active duty Combat Camera Company in the United States Army. He served as a Platoon Leader in Operation Iraqi Freedom for nine months in charge of a team of 22 videographers and photographers who documented the war in support of combat commanders’ tactical, operational, and strategic objectives; all imagery was historical archived at the Pentagon.
Upon his return from the war, Tyler established the first-ever Training Platoon in the unit to pass along tactical and technical continuity and lessons learned to every new Soldier assigned to Combat Camera. Tyler also supervised the logistical, administrative, maintenance, budget, travel and coordination for over 200 Combat Camera Soldiers. He upgraded the entire unit to a new multi-million dollar visual information equipment lifecycle plan that he spent over six months researching and developing to push his unit into a new technological dual high definition photo/video HDSLR workflow.
Tyler graduated magna cum laude from Florida State University’s Media Production program and focused on live sports and event production as well as sports television shows and feature stories where he held producing, directing, technical directing, camera operator, 3D/2D motion graphics, and editing positions.
Tyler is also the website designer/developer for the non-profit organization 100cameras, an FXPHD DSLR Cinematography Professor, and a co-host on This Week in Photography. He is always trying to improve his knowledge and feels it is extremely important to share his experiences with others in the community.
